Turbine data apps can now be visualized in the Meroxa Dashboard! A recent Meroxa CLI release v2.10.0 introduces updated output for meroxa app describe and meroxa app list which now includes URLs to access the Meroxa Dashboard. We have also updated output for meroxa resources list for consistency.

Each Turbine data app deployed to the Meroxa platform has a graphical representation available on the Meroxa Dashboard. The application visualization shows all subcomponents, such as the Resources and Connectors the Meroxa Platform stitches together, as coded within your Turbine code.

To gain a better understanding of your Turbine data app and its components, visit the Dashboard application detail page.

Accessing the Application Detail Page

You can view your application visualization via the application detail page. Here are two ways to access it:

CLI

You will see the url for the application detail page when running any of the following meroxa CLI commands:

  • meroxa app deploy

The URL will appear once deployment succeeds.

  • meroxa app describe

This can be used while working in the Turbine data app local project directory using the Meroxa CLI. You can also run meroxa app describe <appname> if you are working outside of that local project directory.

✨ To visualize your application, visit https://dashboard.meroxa.io/apps/my-meroxa-app/detail
  • meroxa app list

This can be used to produce a table of all Turbine data apps deployed to your account. Included with the output, a URL that can be used to access the Meroxa Dashboard Application list view.

$ meroxa app list

ID NAME LANGUAGE STATE

584 my-meroxa-app javascript running
2980 fooapp golang degraded
3095 barapp python running

✨ To visualize your applications, visit https://dashboard.meroxa.io/apps

The URL can be used to access any of your Turbine data apps through the Meroxa Dashboard. Please see the following instructions on how to accomplish this.

Dashboard

Within the Meroxa Dashboard you can access the application detail page by navigating to https://dashboard.meroxa.io/apps. Next, click on the name of the desired Turbine data app to see its application detail page.

Meroxa Dashboard: Visit App Detail View

On the new application detail page, you will find information about the application including details about sub components, such as resource names, resource states, and the source or destination table names used in your data stream.

Click any of the nodes to gain more insight into the state and configuration:
